The new PNDs feature a completely fresh user interface with lifetime TomTom Traffic and map updates.

“Where navigation used to be about getting people to unfamiliar destinations, we are now empowering drivers with easy access to the information they need to make the smartest driving decisions, every day. The new TomTom GO is an essential daily driving tool, helping Singaporean drivers to get out of traffic, and get to their destinations faster,” says Chris Kearney, Vice President of TomTom Consumer, Asia Pacific.

They also ship with an interactive map featuring 3D buildings and landmarks, giving drivers the ability to know what is going on around them, as well as what lies ahead.

The new series of GO PNDs allow users to view traffic incidents in detail and receive traffic jam alerts, so that they can take the fastest detours available.

With a screen that easily zooms in and out, drivers can find, and explore places on the brand new interactive map, and tap on the map to get an instant route to their destination.

The new TomTom GO series comprises the following models and is currently available at retailers such as Challenger and Harvey Norman.
